What Captain Awkward is Reading, Watching, Eating, Listening To, and Over The Moon About



  • Mildred Pierce.  I love a Depression-era women’s picture, and this one is getting a beautiful reworking and letting a bunch of amazing actresses just go to town.
  • The Killing.  Smart protagonist, smart writing, beautifully shot, great use of rainy Seattle, and a very real portrait of how a crime tears apart a family and a community.


  • Pork and beautiful fresh eggs from C & D Family Farms.  Do you live in Chicago?  Do you like humanely-farmed delicious meat?  Perhaps the magical white van comes to a parking lot (and soon, a Farmer’s Market) near you.

Listening To:

  • Sprawl of Glass (Arcade Fire’s The Sprawl + Heart of Glass = Awesome)

Over The Moon About:

  1. i love how you just slid that crazy awesome over the moon bit at the end. HOW AMAZING ARE YOU? SO AMAZING!!!! Congrats! (p.s. are you going over to see it?)

      Thanks! It’s not in the budget right now – I’m still saving for a new computer – but it’s still exciting news.

      • can’t you just con kanye west into giving you a ride on his private jet? it totally worked on entourage. i think it’s a pretty solid plan. you should call him up.
